Dear All

We have received a request for membership from Texas Seismological Network (TexNet),
Bureau of Economic Geology, John A. and Katherine G. Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin.

They already provide data in SEED format through IRIS and their own FDSNWS (http://rtserve.beg.utexas.edu/fdsnws/).

They also agree to the requirement for FDSN membership:
"Membership in the FDSN is open to all groups that operate more than one broad-band station.
Members agree to coordinate station siting and provide free and open access to their data (normally in SEED format)."

At our last meeting, we decided that, should we receive applications for membership, we could send out an email for voting.

Each member of the FDSN will have one vote. A majority of 2/3 voting members will be required for an affirmative vote. Five members of the FDSN will constitute a quorum.

Please could you send me your votes by no later than 27 July 2017 in order for us to make a decision.

Thank you for you cooperation.
Kind regards
michelle

    Dear Michelle,

    The NEIC has worked closely with TexNet. They are doing a excellent job
    setting up the network. I'm strongly in favor of their membership.
